Tea for Tuesday is Pomegranate Pizzaz, wow do I need a jolt. I have a mound of dishes to wash from yesterday’s family get together, and a dozen or so corsage brooches to list on Etsy. Busy Busy…
The tea cup and saucer are from the Johnson Brother’s collection “Chintz”. I love the subtle feminine colors, and while I was choosing the background I remembered this old Tetley’s Tea tin that I picked up at an antique mall. I just loved the used quality of it and the happy coloring.
I remember at the time my friend Phred who was shopping with me was thinking, why buy something so worn, not pretty, not perfect?
Philosophically speaking there is a difference between choosing to buy a less than perfect object because the price was right than having to choose a less than perfect object for the same reason. In my case it is a little of both, but the perfect thing about this tin was that to me it is perfect, does that make sense?
On Friday’s Favorites this week I will be listing a few other wonderfully old, less than perfect tins, and I will have large photos for those interested in downloading the images.
Well I am off for a walk, and then to tackle the Etsy listings. Here is a preview of the corsages…
Have a wonderful day! Christen
